Johannes Ljungberg ist BGSH-Fellow


We are very pleased to welcome Prof. Johannes Ljungberg as a BGSH Fellow from 26 February to 15 March.

Johannes Ljungberg is assistant professor at the Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre of Excellence for Privacy Studies, where he is the research group leader of the theme ‘urban space’. He is one of the co-editors for Brill’s new interdisciplinary series Studies in the History of Privacy (2023), and the author of a number of articles and book chapters on privacy and private communication. Since his PhD in history at Lund University (defended in 2017), he has also cultivated a particular specialisation in religious dissent.

Johannes will present excerpts from his research in Basel on 28 February at the pre-modern colloquium, entitled "Generational Dissent? Three media shifts in religiously dissenting nodes of transnational networks in the Lutheran North, 1700-1770"

On 13 and 14 March, he will lead a transepochal BGSH workshop on "Private Communication and Surveillance: From the Early Modern Era to the Present Day". On 13 March, there will be a joint discussion of texts, followed by a panel discussion in which Johannes will be joined by Mirjam Janett (Bern), Carla Roth (Sarnen) and Markus Bardenheuer (Basel). On the morning of the second day, there will be time and space for project or source presentations and further discussions.

Assistants, lecturers and professors from the Department of History are also cordially invited to join the event. Please register here.

We are looking forward to spirited exchanges! A warm welcome to Basel, Johannes!
